River Thames Cruises

A wonderful way to see the sights of London.  You can choose from an exhilarating high speed boat trip, or a more relaxed cruise down the Thames with afternoon tea, lunch or dinner.  See the sunset over the spectacular skyline or maybe combine a river cruise with a trip on the London Eye to gain a different perspective of the magnificent views.
